Enhanced Matte Paper Framed Poster (in) - Saint Francis of Assisi receiving the stigmata - Italy - Christianity
Saint Francis of Assisi - Italy
Saint Francis of Assisi, born Giovanni di Pietro di Bernardone, informally named as Francesco, was an Italian Catholic friar, deacon and preacher. He founded the men's Order of Friars Minor, the women's Order of Saint Clare, the Third Order of Saint Francis and the Custody of the Holy Land.
Like many of the Saints here, Francis life is a story of LOVE. It was as profound as it can be, almost incredible. Many abandoned ordinary life to join him in a life of poverty and prayer. The mosaics or paintings often show how animals and birds responded to his immense love.
Quote: If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. Francis of Assisi.
Note: The image was digitally improved by the author for clarity and brightness, as well as many dark spots were fixed as much as possible.
His well known prayer: -------------------------------
Lord make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. And where there is sadness, joy.
O divine master grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand;To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive- and it's in pardoning that we are pardoned. And it's in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
